emergencies along the east coast. on your right, storm team 4 radar is tracking a nor'easter starting tonight and then for the weekend i'm in here with chuck bell. we were dry for so long but now we're getting all this rain. what do you think? >> honestly yes. because yesterday's rain, we had 2 to 4 inches and that sort of essentially resaturated the ground. you're right we've been more than 5 inches of rain since august 1st. we were dry. unfortunately the rain resaturated the ground and now the next rain that comes our way could really spell trouble around here. first things first, is the surefire bet of the nor'easter. strongest winds likely during the day on saturday. how much of each, rain, 3 to 6 inches on average across the area and winds could gust to over 40 miles an hour. there's been a significant
change in the forecast track for hurricane joaquin. still a great deal of uncertainty, but it keeps the center of the circulation offshore. either way, it means wind and rain continuing on into your sunday as well. so it's a wet start this morning. temperatures are in the 50s. it will be a cloudy and wet day. take your umbrella and your raincoat out the door this morning. temperatures will struggle to get back near 60 degrees. angie, back to you. >> thank you so much, chuck. right now storm team 4 is keeping an eye on two weather systems heading our way. hurricane joaquin could make landfall sunday or monday and the track of that hurricane could change depending on the nor'easter. rain expected to bring a lot of rain to the area.

now in old towne, alexandria. i'm standing right at the base here. typically what we have when we have a flooding situation, we see the water coming right on up king street. you can see we have businesses along this low lying area here. these businesses prone to flooding. later on as we continue to watch the systems coming through, we're expecting to see sandbags begin to come out here for people to grab if they feel they here in danger of flooding. that's what happens typically in these kinds of situations. as you're saying, we've got two systems. the nor'easter and, of course, hurricane joaquin which the latest forecast showing it more off the coast. that's good news, but we're still expecting a lot of rain and we've already had a lot of rain. take a look at this. we've had some issues with flooding yesterday in loudoun county. this is actually hamilton station road in loudoun county. the floodwaters caused a big
hole to open in the road there. a lot of repair work that needs to be done. they had to shut the road down in that immediate area. there was a neighborhood in the leesburg area. they had a tremendous amount of flooding. several feet of water going into houses in this one community. they've got a mess to clean up. we've got more rain coming our way. we'll keep a close eye on it and let you know what to dond a how to prepare. back to you all in the studio. >> hurricane joaquin is slamming the bahamas right now. the storm is getting stronger. it was upgraded to a category three. joaquin is in the atlantic and could move up the east coast next. hurricane warnings are in effect in the central islands of the bahamas. winds there gusting up to 120 miles an hour. the bahamas could get well over a foot of rain. we're all watching and waiting. eun? >> kristin, thank you. one thing everybody can do to

they both died at central gardens ii in capitol heights. a man charged in the murders of two sisters, katharine lyon and sheila lyon who disappeared on their way to the mall. they were never found. we expect the judge will appoint an attorney to his case. also today we plan to check on a triple murder case in alexandr alexandria. charles severance has one last hearing before his trial. he faces charges in the killing of three alexandria residents in a ten-year span. today's haring will likely revolve around severance's mental health. defense says he will not plead guilty by reason of insanity but they want to use his condition to prove writings were not his.

beach erosion, coastal flooding, moderate coastal flooding as we get into friday and saturday. and inland, a boat load of rain. this will cause not olk flash flooding. we could get 3 to 5 inches of rain even if we don't have a direct impact from hurricane joaquin. so just keep that in mind. there's the track now. the national hurricane center has adjusted it to the east overnight. notice there's no more landfall officially if you take the center. remember to keep an yeah on the cone and more than likely they'll probably adjust it a little farther east as we go through today and toornlt. the european motdle has been the bellwether so far, keeping it off the coast for the past couple of days in its forecast and now it seems like the american model is adjusting that way. not etched in stone. certainly you need to be cautious, stay with us. stay with wrc, especially if you have any property down on the
maryland/delaware/virginia coast. again, it's looking better but again emphasizing we're going to have a lot of wind, a lot of rain, and a lot more beach erosion. back to you. >> we'll have to watch closely. mike seidel at virginia beach this morning. thank you, mike. this morning's nor'easter expected to bring a lot of rain. a 4 foot wall of water slammed into some homes on trun gate court. take a look at this. flooding forced several streets in lound county to overflow. it caused a bridge to collapse. emergency responders are aurj urging people to plan ahead. >> be aware of what's going on, understand what's coming in. understand your schedule and how the weather might impact that schedule. >> friday and saturday our area could see between 3 to 6 inches of rain. there are several things you can do right now to start

suspect grabbed her from behind, put her in sort of a headlock and pulled her into the bushes. former florida governor jeb bush wasviewed on sirius xm. >> it's a sport for crying out loud it's a football team. >> that was aust just a pork from the football show. it airs tomorrow night. the eagles also weighed in on the name. their media guide does not use the team redskins at all. it refers to the team as washington. we know that could change depending what joaquin brings to the area.
>> that's right. we know that going to a wedding is such a happy occasion. once i got married i enjoyed it even more, but it's expensive. >> it sure is. it costs a lot of money and adds up fast. if you have kids you can sometimes be aet the mercy of your baby-sitter. that's what happen had. they didn't show up to a wedding after their baby-sitter backed out. that did not sit well with the bride who billed them for the two missed meals. it was just over $75 for the two an trays. they also wanted an explanation for why the couple was no-shows. >> i guess i don't know what the right thing would should have been. >> you should never follow up after the fact and-on-why they couldn't attend or much less send a bill. >> it included two meals and a

on hurricane joaquin. you saw mike seidel mention the new forecast keeps the center of circulation potentially off the eastern seaboard. but, again, anywhere inside the cone is a potential for where the storm could be located as we get into early monday and tuesday. so we're going to have to watch this very carefully. with time the forecast track seems to be staying a little bit farther offshore. that's good news. there's still a lot of news. we'll be keeping you posted. in the meantime the nor'easter is a clear thing. clear out the gutters and the downspouts. make sure any pumps or generators are working right now because we have a potential for an enormous amount of rainfall here on friday and saturday. light rain shower and drizzle today. both tomorrow and saturday, wind-driven rain across the area. rain could pile up to several inches each day, two days in a row. there's the radar. you can see a couple of light rain showers around. your rain slick were a little
